"Courage isn't absent of fear, it is the awareness that something else is important."
Focus your efforts on the character ethics and the personal ethics will be set automatically. And remember
There are no Shortcuts.
Reactive people more focus on the circle of Concern and they blame others for their situation.
But Proactive people only focus on the circle of influence and take responsibility for themselves.
"You either act or you're acted upon."
We're in charge. We choose the scripts by which to live our lives. Use this self-awareness to be proactive and take responsibility for your choices. Reactive people take a passive stance -- they believe the world is happening to them. They say things like:
"There's nothing I can do."
"That's just the way I am."
Proactive people, however, recognize they have responsibility or "response-ability," which Covey defines as the ability to choose how you will respond to a given stimulus or situation.
Beginning with the end in mind is also extremely important for businesses.
Being a manager is about optimizing for efficiency. But being a leader is about setting the right strategic vision for your organization in the first place, and asking, "What are we trying to accomplish?"
Before we as individuals or organizations can start setting and achieving goals, we must be able to identify our values. This process may involve some rescripting to be able to assert our own personal values.
In order to manage ourselves effectively, we must put first things first. We must have the discipline to prioritize our day-to-day actions based on what is most important, not what is most urgent.
In order to maintain the discipline and the focus to stay on track toward our goals, we need to have the willpower to do something when we don't want to do it. We need to act according to our values rather than our desires or impulses at any given moment.
This gives a basic idea about benefitting you & your partner with the team spirit. Both share their profit-coin.
You lower your margins but, let your partner have the profits. This provides you with a lot of trust points.
This does exactly opposite, providing you with gain but makes your partner lose or concerned with your partnership. This mindset doesn't lasts for very long.
That which we obtain too easily, we esteem too lightly. It is dearness only which gives everything its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price on its goods
